One last post to close out this blog:
I saw one of John's phones light up this morning, I picked it up to find a group text between his phone and two "new" friends who apparently met at John's Funeral Mass yesterday. Text, "True pleasure to meet you, one more of JohnD's introductions as he took his journey to God. Will follow up." Reply, "Honored. Look forward to learning more about those 30 years you knew him. All the best..."
JohnD, the original "LinkedIn!"
Thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts, for being with us! Forever in our hearts. God bless. XO
